At $45,090, before on-road costs, the Hybrid S tops the range and comes with a features list that screams it from the rooftops. Or the mountaintops. Or at least as far as the gravel tracks will take you towards the mountaintop.
From the outside, 18-inch wheels are the first indicator for the ‘S’ grade - note that hybrids don’t come with spare wheels, just repair kits - as well as body coloured door handles and black plastic trim and cladding, aside from the gloss mirror caps.
The door mirrors are heated and fold away when parked, while up top there’s a sunroof flanked by roof rails, with a styled spoiler at the rear.
Interestingly, there’s no power tailgate.
LED DRLs and headlights are automatic and are aided by steering responsive active cornering lamps, while the wipers are auto rain-sensing.
Inside, dual-zone climate control and heated front seats (the driver’s is eight-way power adjustable) for the cold - all seats are leather accented - while the steering wheel and shifter are also leather-wrapped.
Tech is covered off by the usual 11.6-inch portrait touchscreen centrepiece, with sat-nav, AM/FM and digital radio, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, USB-A and USB-C plugs (in the rear, too), a wireless phone charger, and a 10-speaker Harman Kardon sound system over the usual six-speaker set-up. There’s even an auxiliary audio input.
The driver display is a small 4.2-inch unit flanked by physical dials.
